“Today’s exercise is dogfighting”.
Earlier this morning we’ve had another big Top Gun Maverick trailer drop. In what’s looking like a very expensive victory lap for everyone’s favourite Scientologist, Tom Cruise, the trailer shows Maverick doing what he does best. We’re talking helmetless motorbike rides, beach volleyball, sullen looks underscored by an 80s’ synth, and of course, a helluva lot of dogfighting.
Other than this, the trailer doesn’t really shine any more light on the plot or the roles the new characters will play. From what we know so far, Maverick will return to mentor a new generation of U.S. Navy fighter pilots and, we’re guessing, the old school Top Gun will find himself in the middle of the action himself.
Unsurpisingly, Top Gun Maverick boasts an all-star cast with the likes of Miles Teller, Ed Harris and even Mad Men’s Jon Hamm all teased in the new trailer. One of the most exciting prospects is the slew of unknown faces that will be making their blockbuster debut in this 80s’ reboot.

P.S. If you want a little easter egg here’s Quentin Taratino’s take on the OG Top Gun back in the movie Sleep With Me. Trust us, it’s a laugh.
